    Exactly! Is that why some people call developers 'brews'?

    Well, you can't be all bad. People who make good beer are good people!
    Did you know I'm a brewer . . . . . . . All photographers should be

    When outside the UK, I eat & drink in the non tourist places with the locals. Better food, cheaper prices and much more fun. Oh and ravish the local women (OK just the one and she is my wife )

    As a British ex pat I can honestly say I've never drunk any British beers outside the UK, despite really missing them.

    I've noticed this is really true in Spain

    We Brits seem to want sub standard food and then pay extra for the privilege, when we are abroad

    Weird

    There is a delicious irony in a German offering advice on how to behave correctly when entering another European country...

    Another day goes under; a little bourbon will take the strain...

    Oh, no - I'm a Yank. I had plenty of Bulgarian beer while there. The Guinness was for nostalgia. After all, those 250 year anniversaries only come around once!

    I wonder if Hungarian Borostyán is available in Bulgaria. For a Eastern European beer, its surprisingly easy to drink, and a lot better tasting than a lot of German and Austrian lagers that taste like biting onto tinfoil

    Perfect! So, which was the best one?

    Or in other words, I was of course merely alluding to the (well deserved, in my experience) reputation of German tourists as the most overbearing, arrogant, rude and tight-as-a-gnat's-chuff you're likely to find, and suggesting that people in glass houses might be well advised to lay off the slingshot.
    Another day goes under; a little bourbon will take the strain...
